Project Goal: $103 803
On October 11-15th The “Learning Together” HOPE for AIDS gathering was held at Brackenhurst, Kenya with 30 participants from HOPE for AIDS countries. This was an extremely useful time for all the participants to come together and further develop leadership skills and increase networks within the HOPE for AIDS community.
SIM’s HIV & AIDS program man- agers are alert to the changing environment in which they work, so they greatly appreciated four days of intense discussions and presentations to learn with peers on the common journey towards excellence in their work. Challenging issues were tackled such as facilitating effective partnerships, behaviour change, working with children and youth to develop life skills, and dealing with psychological issues including abuse.
One delegate noted:
“These (seminars) were important as they were giving a clear pic- ture on what approaches are being taken to ensure effective delivery of service.”
The good news is that this is not a one-off learning moment - collaborative initiatives between programs such as sharing resources, exchange visits, and networking are helping to ensure that HOPE for AIDS stays at the cutting edge.
